Ex-California policemen acquitted in beating death of homeless man
Dana FeldmanSANTA ANA, California (Reuters) - Two former policemen were acquitted on Monday in the 2011 beating and stun-gun death of a mentally-ill California homeless man that touched off street protests and political upheaval in the Los Angeles suburb of Fullerton.
Ex-Fullerton police officers Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli were found not guilty of all charges linked to the death of 37-year-old Kelly Thomas following a month-long trial, according to a spokeswoman for the Orange County District Attorney.
The eight-woman, four-man jury deliberated for less than two days before returning the verdicts in a packed Santa Ana, California, courtroom.
